Fibonacci fractal quilt design

Jeff spent the afternoon designing a quilt based on Fibonacci numbers used to make a fractal design (with a smidgen of artistic embellishment). The boundary of the yellow has dimension
s=1.83157... = log(sqrt(2)-1) / log((1+sqrt(5))/2)
At least in the pure form of the fractal.

Sharon broke down and ordered fabric for this one; she wanted to use batik fabrics.

Jeff is still tweaking some of the details.

Update: For an extra-geeky view of the fractal inspiring this, check out Jeff's blog entry.
